The dosage of phentermine can be adjusted to meet the needs of the patient. Depending on the individual, it may be sufficient to take half a tablet (18.75 mg) per day, or it may be necessary to take half a tablet (18.75 mg) twice a day. It is important to follow the instructions of your doctor when taking this medication. Do not take more than prescribed, do not take it more often than prescribed, and do not take it for longer than your doctor has recommended.
Taking too much of this medication can lead to habit-forming behavior (causing mental or physical dependence). No, it is not safe to take phentermine 37.5 times a day. Additionally, since phentermine can disrupt normal sleep patterns, it is best to avoid taking it later in the day. If you are prescribed more than one dose per day, make sure to take the last dose 4 to 6 hours before bedtime.
Phentermine is a weight-loss medication that suppresses appetite in people who are following a weight-loss program to treat obesity. It is usually taken once per day when used as prescribed. This may be due to the fact that phentermine is only intended as a short-term treatment for obesity, and many doctors (26% of patients) believe that taking the maximum dose of phentermine per day will help maximize results. While most patients take one of the six standard doses of phentermine, precise dosage instructions vary depending on individual needs and preferences.
